  • It's awesome to see such an old piece of American history so well maintained. It's pretty neat seeing her up out of the water while they are doing restorations, but right now all the cannon are off the ship, and the top half of the masts and most of the rigging is missing - I'll need to come back again after the restoration is done. You can still walk around on the top two decks, it really is a missive ship! The museum there is also quite good and is worth a few hours of time, and if you're interested in ww2 history, there's a destroyer from 1943 that can be touted as well.
  • What a unique experience for anyone interested in sailing or Navy History! Don't miss trying out the hammocks on the second floor! It is good to be aware that the museum is separately run from the ship. The museum is a non-profit, donation based site, and the ship is run by the Navy, is free, requires photo ID, and the ship's hours are more limited than the museum hours due to the restoration.
  • Although the ship was under going renovations when we visited it was still a unique stop. Was very cool seeing the Navy practicing their demonstration with the cannon when we stopped. Great view of the Boston downtown skyline from this harbor.
  • Was just there with my grandson. He absolutely loved it. Even though only 2 decks were open and the ship is in dry-dock, he was fascinated. Our tour guide was very animated and told the story in a way that kept his attention. I also like that you could buy a flag and they would fly it on the ship and allow him to be part of the raising and lowering. They we could take it home along with the certificate that states it flew on the ship this day. Can't wait to take him back to see it in it's glory.
  • It is simply amazing. To actually be on board is something that I don't think any words can describe, but needs to be experienced. Thank you all that keep this piece of US history.
